Sunny Days


What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?

Vincent Van Gogh
I am launching new work and a new blog and I am also working on a new website. 🙂

The images you see here are the sketches as well as some images of the stages that this painting went through. It is titled “Sunny Days” and it’s a 24 x 36 x 1.5 inch oil on canvas painting.

The last image is a small section of the finished piece, which has gone through many transformations from beginning to end.

So I ask myself what Vincent Van Gogh asked and in my mind I think of all the times that I took a step forward, some of those steps brought me pain and sorrow, some of those steps brought freedom and peace, some of the steps lifted my heavy burdens and replaced it with such compassion; my life, too, goes through many trial periods, many transformations and just like my paintings, I am drawn toward something greater in life.

I can say with all conviction, love those around you and let go of the hurt…let go of the small insignificant things that seem so big in the moment and LOVE, LIVE, GIVE and FORGIVE…then your beauty will shine (and mine too).
